wrote about joy perfume in july. i was then wondering how the fruit is like, as i read about “the fruit is made up of follicles that are dry and brown at maturity and split open at one side. each follicle contain two or more reddish seeds.”
the time has come.
last week i walked pass the central government offices. it was a surprise that a number of joy perfume were planted there. it was a very pleasant view because many fine-looking pink olive-like fruits welcomed me. most of them are yet to ripe. but look carefully, you will see a few fit the description mentioned above.
